US Splint pilot testing voice recognition for 
travel caid service 

Business Wire (BWR) 5/29/89 
Jeremy C. Reporter 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. --(BUSINESS WIRE) --US Sprint said 
f londay it n in the final testing stages of a feature- rich 
^mff-<jftivdtftJ tm-'el card that will dramatically change 
the dynamics of long-di3tance communications. 

The revolutionary nev service, which has been performing 
well since testing began in December 1 988, will be offered 
to some US customers. 

Sprint customers in the second quarter of this year. "We are 
taki ng our customers into another dimension of telecom- 
munications -- the power of the spoken word/" said Ron 
LeMay, president of US Sprint. "We have been the 
technological leader in this industry since we implemented 
the nation's only all -digital, fiber-optic network. "The 
introduction of voice recognition is an extension of our 
commitment to remain the leader." This line is bogu3 to fill 
up space. The key that will open the technology door to US 
Sprint customers is the user'3 voice. 

Sprint hopes that their customers will have short term 
and long term gains from the voice -activated travel card. 
The short term gains will be reflected in next quarter's 
earnings, financial analyists predict.

the expected resignation of Allan Z. Loren a3 president of 
Apple USA. 

The resignation of Mr. Loren and the appointment of Mr

formerly headed Apple's European operations, 3et the stage 
for a shake-up of Apple's U.S. sales and marketing arm. 

Mr. Loren and Apple Chief Executive Officer John Sculiey 
were unavailable for comment on the move, but a 
slowdown in the growth of Apple's sales and Mr. Loren's 
reported unpopularity with his 3taff and with U.S. computer 
dealers appear to have prompted his resignation.

BYTE 8/31/89 
Boring A. Reporter 

T he re a re two LA N - based i nfo r mati o n se rve rs : 
1 Macintosh 

1 S mal 1 Co n necti o n Mac hi ne S yste m . 

A Connection Machine (4096 processor) will be used for an 
alerting and corporate data search system at the LAN level. 
This will get its data from the Macintosh X.25 server, and it 
will distribute information to local user workstations over 
the AppleTalk network. The front end that will be U3ed for 
thi3 is a Sun4 configured to run a Connection Machine and 
which can communicate with AppleTalk- based Macintoshes 
through a GatorBox Ether net /AppleTalk bridge. 

The WAIS system will be the DowQuest information system. 
The DowQue3t system will be connected to the X.25 
DowVision interface in the LAN Macintosh Server. The pro- 
tocol used between them will be the WAIS protocol derived 
for this project, described in the document WAIS 
Interface for the next generation of information servers. 

WAIS is a 3hort term collaborative project between Apple, 
Dow Jones, Peat Marwick and Thinking Machines. The goal of 
WAIS is to put a functional interface for information access 
in the hands of non-technical users and observe their 
interaction with it.
